ACT Research: 2013 ends with solid trailer orders

Dec. 26, 2013

According to Americas Commercial Trucking (ACT) Research, the robust 43% month-over-month gain in net orders in October, 2013, was followed by November’s less vigorous 3% month-over-month improvement. Strength was concentrated in dry vans, flats and liquid tanks.

“On a year-over-year basis, total net orders of 25,670 units were up 17%,” says Frank Maly, director – CV Transportation Analysis and Research at ACT.

“Cancellations continued to be low, and that appears to be the result of firm commitments by fleets.”
